Need to purchase 10 additional AP licenses for CISCO 2504 WLAN controller

 

Hi

I want to add additional 10 AP on 2504 controller . On portal (http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/2500-series-wireless-controllers/data_sheet_c78-645111.html) I can see there is provision to buy 1,5 ans 25 AP license . I would need only 10 , so in this scenario is it possible that I can purchase 2 L-LIC-CT2504-5A licences or cisco can give me one customised license for 10 AP.

Let me know so that i can manage accordingly.Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Shiva

Hi,

you can not buy a wlc with 10 AP licence directly.

what you can do is:

1. Buy AIR-CT2504-5-K9: 2500 Series Wireless Controller for up to 5 Cisco access points plus you can buy a 5 AP adder licence(L-LIC-CT2504-5A).

or

2. Buy a AIR-CT2504-15-K9: 2500 Series Wireless Controller for up to 15 Cisco access points

Hi SandeepThanks for your

Hi Sandeep

Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify , we have initially purchased 2504 WLC with 25 licenses . We now have a requirement of additional 10 APs but the problem here is that only 1,5 and 25 AP adder license pack is available as per the article .There is no mention of 10 adder licenses in there.

So my question here is is it possible that I can purchase 2 L-LIC-CT2504-5A licences and install them one after another for effectively getting 10 APs or cisco can give me one customised license for 10 AP.

Awaiting your reply.

Thanks

Purchasing 2x L-LIC-CT2504-5A

Purchasing 2x L-LIC-CT2504-5A just buys you two 5AP licenses for a total of 10 APs - this is right.

What you're missing is that you don't "install them one after another".  You can only have one key at a time on the appliance.

So what you need to do after purchasing the new adder licenses is to take the Product Activation Keys (PAKs) you get back for the new licenses, and have these applied (added) to your existing license - http://www.cisco.com/go/license .

Once you've been to that page and submitted the PAKs you will get a single new license key file back for 25+10=35 APs - which you then apply to your appliance.
